So I thought Sweden’s Refused had made it abundantly clear to us years ago that they were “fucking dead.” The revolutionary hardcore act have definitely been playing several reunion shows over the past few years, but to think that they might actually make a full-blown comeback should come as a total shock to most fans of the band. Just two days ago, it was announced that the band would be playing not only a full US tour, but plenty of dates in Europe as well. Head over the jump to see if they’re playing you’re area!

It’s really difficult to say whether or not Refused is looking to be a full-time band or not at this point, but with a tour itinerary like this, it certainly seems so. Will this be the last time they show up in the states? Could they possibly be working on a new album? We’re not sure yet, but make sure to get to one of these clubs soon to see the group that brought us the game-changing album, The Shape of Punk to Come.
